"American art has sustained a severe loss in the death of Charles Loring Elliott, the distinguished portrait painter, who died on Tuesday, at Albany, from abscess on the brain. Mr. Elliott was born in Scipio, N.Y., in 1812. His father, an architect by profession, removed to Syracuse in the childhood of his son, and placed him in the store of a country merchant. The occupation was ... distasteful to young Elliott, who devoted all his leisure time to his favorite pursuits of drawing and painting, with the expectation of one day becoming a painter. - Elliott went to New York and became a pupil of Trumbull, and later Quidor, a painter of fancy pieces. After about a year's residence in New York he returned to the western part of the State, where he practiced his profession, more particularly portrait painting, for about ten years. Returning to New York, he established himself as a portrait painter, and has since been a resident of Albany or its immediate neighborhood. Since 1846 Mr. Elliott has been a member of the National Academy of Design."
